Explanatory Statement – Instrument 2017/1

 

 

The Minister for Infrastructure and Regional Development approved the allocations for the new Roads to Recovery programme, to run from 1 July 2014 to 30 June 2019 on 12 September 2014 (see Roads to Recovery List 2014 Instrument No. 1).

 

In that list, at Schedule 2, is $21,504,000 for special projects in Western Australia.  An additional amount of $11,322,000 was allocated as part of the re-introduction of the fuel excise, bringing the total available for the special projects to $32,826,000.

 

This money is for special projects funding (bridge works and Indigenous access roads) that are unique to Western Australia.  Western Australia has now provided a complete list of projects for funding under the Indigenous access roads component of the programme, and a complete list of bridge projects, which is reflected in this instrument.

 

The project lists are prepared by the Western Australian Local Government Grants Commission, in consultation with the Western Australian Local Government Association and Main Roads WA, and are provided by the Western Australian Minister for Local Government.

 

Instrument 2017/1 amends the list to allocate the balance of $16,100,667 allocated to Western Australia for the special bridge and Indigenous access road projects.
